Cars for style

Cars, to some extent are an expression of their owner- prestige, power, style etc. Even more so when you hire one for a special day. For a car lover and a photographer, it is always a joy to use a really cool car in a portrait photo. I had many opportunities for this when doing weddings, though I was always conscious not to let the car distract me too much!

The right car as a prop or as a background can really make the scene. Anyway this is just an excuse to post some car pics. And if anyone wants to do this: for a day, I would be quite happy to come along for your photos 😉

Hard Light

As a portrait photographer, I usually seek out soft, but directional light.  The soft light is flattering to humans and the right direction of light shapes and forms the features of face and body.  But my favorite rule of photography is to break the rules of photography.  Sunny summer mornings is when I am looking for some open shade, which I did do in this session, but I could not resist that wall  with the shadows playing on it, so I took a few, and they were my favorites out of the session.
